I've gotten dozens of these today. They appear to be standard spam, but the subject of every message is "test XXX", where "XXX" is an apparently random text string. My spam filter (IHateSpam) isn't catching any of them.

Had a ton of these showing up today as well - spam filters were catching them all, but nevertheless, we received a large amount of them... If you can add *test* to your filters, or I noticed that the words of the body are all the same, just arranged in different order - if you can add those words (X & N A X, V " A G R A, etc) to your filters, you should be good to go....
